I ditched MS Word in favour of a UK product, Scrivener 3, a few months ago, and have found that it has improved my efficiency when writing, allows me to keep all my ideas and scenes in one place to access them all concurrently, and compiles my works to create outlines, ebooks and submissions for review. A godsend at £45, and I cannot imagine using anything else. I’d recommend it to anyone who loves writing.
Looking around the web, I came across Autocrit. It’s a US product with a pricing structure from $10-$80 a month, so not insignificant. It purports to offer critical guidance on writing style, genre and content. Has anyone used it, and is it any good?

I second the Scrivener recommendation, and I have not even scratched the surface of what Scrivener can offer.
No experience of Autocrit. Have just joined Scribophile but it’s not doing it for me just yet.

If you like Scriv then check out Aeon Timeline and Pro Writing Aid, they both can import directly from Scrivener and mimic its Binder structure.
There’s a Windows version of Scrivener3 that’s in Beta testing (which you can download for free). It’s almost ready to go live so it’s stable and most of the functionality is there. Definitely worth trying out.
The Novel Factory is also a great tool. Comes in online and local app versions.
